You may ask, “How can I take care of my life?” Don’t worry that such and such will happen. Don’t create such anxieties. Rather, wait and see what happens, wait and see what events occur in your life. Feel anguished or elated if such feelings are part of the experience. That’s part of being human. But don’t categorize life experiences as negative or positive, miserable or happy. Then whatever happens, let it happen.
Think, “How can I take care of it? What can I do to learn from it?” Instead of being caught by a happening, rather see it, face it, overcome it and learn from it. This is the attitude of someone seeking the meaning of life.”
